Linux Mint 14

linux mint 14 I am running Linux Mint 14 on a Compaq circa 2006 with 1.5 Gb ram. Very impressive. Graphically so cool and slick and the best yet in terms of the Linux Mint selections which are all good, in my opinion. They load and go. Full stop end of story. I have the glass effect and was pleased with the choices of themes. As you know, I want my computer to look nice before I use it. It manages flash better than other Linux versions but is still not as good as Windows. To give it the benefit of the doubt, it might need a bit more ram. I shall probably load it on my new laptop now because I really do like it. The transitions are smooth as I move around the laptop and I am constantly pleased with how it looks. Graphics are crystal clear even on this older laptop so I’d love to see it on something like my desktop which is graphics dedicated. My only hiccough is getting it to recognise my external speakers. Since this is a first ever with any OS I just have to think it through. Linux Mint 14 comes preloaded with everything you could want. I haven’t found myself yet going off to look for software or anything else for that matter. If you have never tried Linux, then I think this is the one for you!

N.B. I have since fixed the speaker issue easily by clicking on the sound icon, going to the the sound settings and turning the volume right up and then testing the speakers. They work fine now!
